Think it was discussed before. E is the correct choice since rest of the nouns are plural.

(E) over A for the plural construction. Tricky question.

(A) anyone who works
(B) anyone working
(C) workers
(D) those for whom work is
(E) any people who work

A : S-V problem (anyone (singular) - their (plural) )
B: S-V problem (anyone (singular) - their (plural) )
C: does'nt make sense
D: does'nt make sense (work is their hands?!)
E: correct (any people (plural) - their (plural))

Nothing wrong with A

anyone is a singular noun. The corresponsing pronoun should be either his/her, not their.
